Activate volume on 2nd controller

In EMC I can easily change the active controller for a volume.

 

In NetApp I can't seem to find such a feature.

I either need to use SnapMirror (and have double the space needed, license needed), ndmpcopy (long downtime; double the space needed) or vfilers (still copies all data over if I understand correctly).

 

Is this due to the architecture of OnTap?

 

Is it actually possible to easily swap 2 controllers? (controller 1 becomes controller 2, controller 2 becomes controller 1)?

By swapping the physical controllers and the CF cards?

 

Thanks in advance!
